The Trouble With Magic By Ruth Crew ($5.9)

When Barbara and Rick Benton find a wizard named Harrison Peabody in an old bottle, they quickly discover that magic isn’t as simple as it looks. But even tricky magic is better than no magic, and soon the Bentons are flying around Prospect Park with a large black umbrella and befriending a sea serpent in the lake. How can they keep Harrison a secret, though, when he’s living in their attic?

Delightful stories that deal with matter-of-fact magic, Ruth Chew’s books have been engaging young readers for over 40 years. Now a new generation can discover the timelessness of these marvelous tales.

When you remove the book jacket, you will see the classic cover of the book.

It shows Harrison with Barbara and Rick Benton riding a magical creature. The colors are muted but it feels like there is magic waiting to be unleashed with the turn of the cover. Exciting!

The book is filled with stunning illustrations in black and white.

I’m happy to share this classic read to my kids. Since it’s filled with magic and adventure, they were easily enticed by the plot and the characters!

The Life Of Ty By Lauren Myracle ($18.98)

Ty Perry’s second-grade life is crazier than ever.

He’s trying hard not to worry too much, but that’s not easy when his brain is filled with so many thoughts, like finally finding a pet for Baby Maggie, his sometimes-crazy classmates, and the dreaded neck-pinch-of-death. And then there’s his upcoming recitation about doing an act of kindness in front of the whole class!

Ty remains his wacky, curious self in this bighearted second installment of the Life of Ty series. Practicing kindness, random or not, doesn’t take that much worrying after all. Being kind is part of being Ty.

This one’s a light read about school life, and it also imparts a lesson about kindness.

There are many funny moments all throughout the story and that’s what we really liked!

The main character is a boy, but the story itself appeals to boys and girls alike.

Cork & Fuzz Spring Cleaning By Dori Chaconas ($14.99)

Cork is a short muskrat who likes to clean. Fuzz is a tall possum who would rather play than tidy. When Cork tells Fuzz to help with chores, Fuzz says, “You are not the boss of me!” Can the two friends find a way to have fun and clean up?

The tenth book in this easy-to-read series is a gently funny story of two best friends who, whether messy or clean, always find a way to work together.

This book is Level 3, which means it’s ideal for transitional readers.

The inside flap shows a summary of Spring Cleaning plus a cute illustration of Cork and Fuzz.

There are colorful illustrations to accompany the story. The dialogues are fun and great for reading aloud!

All three books from this month’s Kids BookCase Club were a hit with my children! I liked the variety of their choices — there was a classic, a light and funny story, and something appropriate for a transitional reader. These are also great books to pack for trips, or even just for a little bedtime story bonding.
